TerraCycle provides recycling solution for unneeded office equipment among widespread adoption of remote work
As a result of the pandemic, companies are disposing of unnecessary office equipment in response to either economic-related personnel cuts or employees' widespread adoption of remote or hybrid schedules.
To accommodate this new influx of unwanted office supplies, TerraCycle provides a solution with its Zero Waste Boxes. The boxes provide a recycling solution for nearly every piece of office waste which are generally not recyclable through most towns' conventional recycling facilities.
When full, the boxes can be returned to TerraCycle for processing and the collected waste will be cleaned, melted and remolded to make new products.
